Aswagandha is an adaptogen, it’s best to take a little bit over a consistent period of time. Adaptogens are very safe to use, and they work by adapting to whatever your body needs, whether that be increased energy, reduced stress, or improved skin. Ashwagandha tastes a bit bitter, but that can actually be great for the digestive system since they activate bile in our liver.
